Hi, I’m Sam!

I’m 26 years old, I’m from Brisbane, Australia and I’m obsessed with personal development!

I mean, I love other things too – travel, indoor greenery, the beach, fairy lights, inspiring podcasts, Keeping Up With The Kardashians (don’t judge me), my boyfriend Steve and any cocktail with vodka.

But personal development is my thing – which is why I talk about it all the damn time (but it won’t take you long to realise that).

Why I Started Smart Twenties

I started Smart Twenties back in 2013 because I couldn’t find any blogs I could really, truly relate to. 

No one was talking about the stuff I really wanted to know – how to figure out what the hell to do with my life (finally did that this year – eeee!), how to stay consistent and how to actually stick to a habit (I’ve now learned so much I created a 28-day habit bootcamp for perfectionists).

Even though I had big ambitions, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and was too unsure of myself to give any kind of real advice! So I just posted links to things I found inspiring and helpful with a couple of sentences alongside it.

But persistence pays off and hard work pays off!

Now, almost three years later, Smart Twenties is a popular personal development blog helping thousands of ambitious women from all around the world make the most of their twenties. And earlier this year, I left my full-time accounting job to pursue blogging – fuck yes!

I also started a Youtube channel so I can share even more advice and post helpful videos every single day, like this:

    Hi Sam!
    First of all I’m sorry for my English, but I’m Italian.
    I discovered your blog through Pinterest and immediately I love it, I must compliment you.
    I love self-help book too although in Italy few people read these books.
    This blog is very neat and I thank you because I never found any blog like this.
